    Honors Physical Science

    October 19-23 

    TEXT BOOKS will be loaned out to work from home on "at home days" for the rest of the year.  This unit is over CHAPTER 5.  Hard copies of SAFETY CONTRACT signature pages must be signed by parent and returned before doing Chem Labs.  Hard Copies of ATOMIC STRUCTURE AND PERIODIC TABLE will also be given to students with practice sheets to be done on "at-school days".  Students are expected to show activity on TEAMS during "at-home days" with videos, simulations, etc that will reinforce learning, but as long as we are in yellow, all points will be earned during at school days.  These will include POP QUIZZES ON TEXT READINGS, videos etc.    Kahoots for points will also be done at school.  
     
    TESTS are 50% old information and 50% new information.  Students can review old tests or converse with me any day during any advisory, GRIT time, Lunch time, before or after school.    Although I throw out every student's lowest test score each semester, retakes are not allowed.
